Hair loss is a prime concern for many men and women these days – whether it is genetic, due to stress, bad haircare or any medical condition. But with advances in the field and adequate research, various new techniques have cropped up in the market which can combat the condition with ease. Platelet-Rich Plasma or PRP, is showing impressive results in reversing hair loss. Dr Balkrishna Singh, Consultant Tricologist, Homeopath and cosmetic dermatologist, explains the procedure.

Who should opt for PRP?

People who have thinning hair, and those with androgenetic alopecia (male pattern baldness – hair loss at the top of the scalp and a receding hairline particularly along the temples), women with male pattern alopecia can all benefit from it.

The treatment requires about eight sittings, each two weeks apart for best results. 

The procedure cost varies from clinic to clinic and on the doctor’s experience and skills. It starts from Rs 4,000 and can go up to Rs 15,000 per session. Here’s a permanent solution for hair loss.
